If you have a backup, you can restore it and continue the run. It will continue to show as errored but the Trickles will be accepted, credit will be given (as soon as the Run passes its last posted Trickle), and the science results will be used.

If you have other active projects, they will also be returned to the backup point because the entire boinc Folder must be restored.

ummm.....
from before the wu started!

is there any way to delete some recent output files to trick boinc into letting me start this wu again?? 40.5 days is a lot of lost crunching.

actually the process canceled was a non-running sulfur thread (that had been aborted long ago) that still was present in the task manager. when i accidentally killed it, it took the running thread with it.

To backup:

On a regular basis, suspend BOINC, wait until the model stops running, then exit BOINC.

To restore:

Exit BOINC, delete the BOINC folder, copy the saved BOINC folder, paste this to where the deleted folder was, and click on boincmgr icon in BOINC folder to start it again.
The model will continue from where it was at the last checkpoint before the backup.

If you are running multiple projects, it gets messy.
See the <a href=\"http://boinc-doc.net/boinc-wiki/index.php?title=Backup_BOINC\"> BOINC Wiki</a> for details.

Does your backup include sulphur_e0yj_000654427.zip or is it still on your system?

Do you have a client_state.xml file containing the 6 file_info sections and the workunit and result sections for that result?

If the answer to both is yes it ought to be possible to recover the model in it\'s current state, but you need to have a reasonable understanding of how everything hangs together. I\'ve done it a few times and if you need any help you can PM me the relevant client_state.xml files (in code blocks) on the TP forums.
